New Delhi, Dec 4: Alleging that the government had evidence to arrest Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi months before they fled the country but did not do so as Finance Minister Arun Jaitley's daughter was hired as Choksi's lawyer, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday demanded Mr Jaitley's resignation.
In a post on social media, Rahul said, "8 months before they were allowed to flee, the IT department wrote a 10,000 page report on Chota Modi & Choksi's massive fraud.
Govt had evidence to arrest them. But didn't because FM Jaitlie's daughter was hired as Choksi's lawyer. FM Jaitlie must resign immediately.- he said. (UNI)
